Every year London's museums put on a special "Museums at Night" event, in which members of the public are given an opportunity to see some of the museums after hours.

Some museums are obviously better than others... and it's usually the older ones that have got a bit of extra atmosphere, and the Benjamin Franklin House has a little secret in the basement...

As well as being a Grade I listed Georgian townhouse, the Benjamin Franklin House was also home to an anatomy school -- and ended up with a load of bones buried beneath the floor! But how did those ten people get there? Historian Braena Sykes will be on hand to reveal the darker side of the 18th century...

In case you don't know who Benjamin Franklin is, he was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States who helped to draft the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. He was also a bit of an inventor, and was responsible for bifocal glasses (thanks Ben) and the urinary catheter (...thanks a bunch, Ben!).
